HS in the blogosphere
This week I encountered 3 blogs exploring HonorShame realities in relation to vocation, Asian-American theology, and gender mutuality. They all got me thinking in new directions for developing a truly Christian theology for honor-shame contexts. Enjoy the reading, and join the conversations! 1- “Honor, Shame, and Vocation” by Laura Merzig Fabrycky of the Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture. Lots of good questions from years of living in the Arab world, so join the conversation there!
- What does the concept of vocation mean for persons in an honor culture?
- In what ways can we use our vocations to confer honor and dignity upon others?
NEXT: To continue the previous serious How Narratives Subvert Honor Codes, the next blogs will explore Jesus’ subversive parable about an honorable father with 2 sons.
